This is very metal. It’s also very cringey.
Toronto metal band WITCHROT announced that they will be taking an “extended hiatus” (ahem — that’s code for breakup) in a Facebook post this week.
The reasons for the split are… personal.
Band-member Peter took to the page with a photo that speaks a thousand words, plus a detailed account of why the group will be parting ways.
“Due to the unfortunate reality of our guitarist fucking my girlfriend of almost 7 years WITCHROT will be taking an extended hiatus,” he wrote.
“I however will continue the band in another space and time, being ripe with hate the music is slowly flowing and without a doubt will become the most devastating, torturous music I have ever created. Thanks for the support, stay heavy – Peter.”
The post continues: “Also our drummer died…”
We’re hoping that last bit is a Spinal Tap reference. No matter what, it’s looking like a bad day to be that guitar. We can’t speak for the one who was holding it.
Peter: We know how much these things can hurt. We’ll be waiting with open hearts and ears for the devastating, torturous music that’s to come.
